Dear Mr. Tovey,

"First, it was never proven to the world that espionage was their intent, only to the satisfaction of the Iranian courts. Their country, their rules-so be it."

My Answer : Well what were these people doing in Iraqi Kurdistan then if their intention was not to gather intelligence from the Iranian end ? I consider that as an incident of espionage my dear Mr. Tovie and it is considered by many sane people around the World.

Regarding the laws in Iran , Mr. Tovie , even Anwar Al-Awlaki was not considered a criminal under any laws in any country of the World including America , the country of "rule of law" my dear Mr. Tovie. So when your president decided to assasinate Al-Awlaki in the name of Jesus do you support that ? See the difference between Mr. Ahmedinajad and Mr. Obama is that the former is ready to forgive even foreigners who are spying against his country whereas the latter assasinates his own citizens without any proper trials in the name of Jesus for the sake of political benefits.

"Who do you really think is responsible for the massacres of innocents: Almighty God? Death comes to all, and to some death is at the hands of others. Some might invoke the name of God, but unreality they lie to say that it was a true god."

My Answer : Well then when your protestant calvinist founding fathers were killing Native Americans in millions and invoking the name of Jesus for those same acts were they not doing the right thing then My Dear Mr. Tovie or was it simply that Jesus is not a true God ? I would love to know your view on this one.

When thousands of innocent Mexicans were slaughtered by your former president Mr. Polk for annexing Texas , California and Arizona and under the name of "manifest destiny" then was that act right from the view of "Hebrew Holy Bible" or the God under whose name those atrocities were made was not true God ?

When thousands of Philippinos were massacred by your president Thedore Roosevelt under the same name "White man's burden" was that act then right from the view of "Hebrew Holy Bible" or the God under whose name those atrocities were made was not true God ?

When President Bush decided to invade Iraq and slaughter millions in the name of Jesus then was that act then right from the view of "Hebrew Holy Bible" or the God under whose name those atrocities were made was not true God ?

I would love to hear your views on all these my dear Mr. Tovie and that would help me to know the moral world that you and your True God are willing to create.
